Occupation authorities of CADLO intend to completely withdraw Ukrainian passports from citizens living there by 2025. This was reported by representative of CADO of Ukraine in the TCG Serhiy Harmash at a press conference in Kyiv today, - correspondent of OstroV reports.
"The issuance of Russian passports there (in CADLO, - ed.) is under progression. According to my information, the task by 2025 is to ensure that there are no holders of Ukrainian passports, that is, they can be even confiscated. The problem not of the checkpoints will arise then, but of the possibilities of our citizens to enter the controlled territory of Ukraine in the absence of Ukrainian documents. The problem is quite serious", - he said.
As previously reported, head of the Russian Federation Putin signed a decree on the simplified acquisition of Russian citizenship by residents of the occupied Donbas in April 2019. A year later, the state duty was canceled for obtaining a passport as well.
